Princess Beatrice has an impressive figure and one which she has worked on for many years, according to a diet and fitness expert. The Princess of York, 34, is known for wearing stylish dresses that not only look sophisticated, but show off her impressively toned legs.
The mother-of-one works hard to maintain her seriously sculpted muscles, regularly running to hone her calf muscles, which looked defined in her knee-length dress for her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral.
Beatrice has long been a keen runner and is the only member of the Royal Family to have run the London Marathon, which she completed in 2010.
The 34-year-old was dedicated to her marathon training, with her trainer Nadiya Fairweather explaining: “We trained in snow, we trained in rain, we trained in mud, we trained in everything. She was committed.”
Michael Brigo, a Personal Trainer from Bri Go Personal Training previously told Express.co.uk: “Princess Beatrice gave birth in autumn 2021 and she’s already looking in great shape. Diet is a major factor in any weight loss plan, even more so when pregnant.

What diet would Beatrice have taken to achieve such impressive weight loss?
Dr Charlotte Norton, a Medical Director at The Slimming Clinic explained to Express.co.uk: “I’m sure there would have been a lot of factors which contributed to Princess Beatrice’s impressive post-baby weight loss.
“One of the things that aids with weight loss significantly is breastfeeding. While the amount of weight that can be lost via breastfeeding varies from person to person, typically an individual could look at burning between 500 and 700 calories per day.
“In order to achieve sustainable weight loss, it is likely that the Princess would have had a high-fibre diet consisting of foods such as avocados, berries, beans, broccoli and more. Fibre is great for making you feel fuller for longer, which as a result, curbs snacking throughout the day.
“In addition to this, stocking up healthy proteins such as lean meats, eggs and dairy would have boosted metabolism and decreased appetite which would have aided in weight loss.
“Coupling a healthy and nutritious diet with exercise would have also contributed to her weight loss; however this would of course depend on the healthcare advice provided post-pregnancy,” the expert noted.

Would Beatrice have done a lot of exercise as well as dieting to regain her figure prior to having a baby last September?
Dr Charlotte added: “I think it is likely that Princess Beatrice would have focussed on dieting and exercise prior to having a baby and perhaps continued this on throughout pregnancy with professional guidance and advice.
“It is quite normal for those who exercise regularly pre-pregnancy to continue this throughout pregnancy, which can of course aid in post-pregnancy weight loss. “That being said, exercise post-pregnancy would largely depend on the type of pregnancy that Princess Beatrice experienced.
“While it is normal to begin exercising soon after giving birth, depending on the trauma to the body, it may differ from person to person.”
Did Princess Beatrice have a healthy birth?
The expert opined: “I imagine that providing Princess Beatrice’s birth was healthy, then she would have certainly implemented some cardio and resistance training to aid her in losing weight.”
